Backing Guidance and help

I have become much better at backing up our rv and am now WAY more comfortable then when I hit the road for the first time.

But, heard a story of a guy backing his 45 footer into his site,
his wife was out there with a walkie talkie yakkin away and waving her arms guiding him in.
He backed the unit in perfectly.
His neighbor watched and later said
"Geez those radio's are a great idea,
you backed that big coach in like a pro".
The man replied
yeah, the Darling Wife loves that radio,
I haven't turned mine on for five years !!!

We stopped using the radio's years ago and switched to our cell phones. I call her and tell her we're all set up and I will pick her from the gift shop.

Yeah, dh tells me this and that, usually long after I started making whatever correction he's talking about. He is mostly there to keep me from hitting something and to tell me when the slides are lined up.... but don't tell him that.
